Super Eagles Head Coach Jose Peseiro defends his team recent shaking performances against Guinea Bissau, stating the plan is to play offensive football the fans have yearning for.
The Super Eagles laboured twice against Wild Dogs Guinea Bissau in their last African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The team lost the first leg 1-0 in Abuja last Friday, before bouncing to win at the Estadio 24 de Setembro on Monday.
Moses Simon’s 30th-minute penalty made amends for Peseiro’s men in the second leg, but it wasn’t a convincing performance.
In a chat with NFF’s media team after Monday’s victory, the Portuguese gave his thoughts on the performance and his desire to help improve the attacking input.
“Our team is much better than Guinea Bissau and we created many chances in the second leg, just like the first. Also, the pitch is better than Abuja. You know our team play an offensive game, and I think we deserved to beat Guinea in both matches. We could have beaten them like 5-1 in Abuja and maybe 5-0 in the second leg because they didn’t create one opportunity,” Peseiro began.
“I like the quality of our football, the ball possession and the creation of clear opportunities. Our mistake was the finishing and that can improve in the next matches. At this moment, I am happy, not because of the result, but because we played quality football with our quality players.”
“You try to plan an offensive game that the fans want. The last coach left because the people complained of that, so I want to play nice and beautiful football with opportunities. We have the best squad now and I think we can do better with our finishing,” the coach said.
